The Paula Deen racism scandal just got reignited thanks to a blockbuster New York Times story Thursday that claims the former Food Network star asked black employees to dress like Aunt Jemima.
The profile of Deen's cook Dora Charles overflows with allegations of racist behavior. Deen allegedly paid black employees less than white ones and used racial slurs.
Deen finally found an African-American employee willing to perform this throwback to plantation life in Charles' friend and colleague Ineata Jones, who the Times reports is nicknamed Jellyroll. The paper says that postcards of Jones ringing a dinner bell are for sale at her stores (pictured left).
Jones drew the line at dressing like Aunt Jemima, the Quaker Oats spokeswoman with origins in minstrel shows.

She ain’t in no ways tarred!
Like Cornflake without the milk.
A couple years ago they went after a politician for dressing in a nazi SS uniform. Never mind the fact that he was a WWII reenactor.
At this point, I sooo don’t give a sh#%.
any pictures of the Detroit City Council ?
Interestingly enough, I recall many family meal times at grandma's house where there was a dinner bell run and words almost identical to the claim in this article - no slaves were involved....
That is great, LOL!
IF she really did this, then I no longer have any sympathy for her. But its a big if.
I never knew that Aunt Jemima worked for the Quaker Oats guy. How much does he pay her?
Shhhh. It’s a secret already. They use code words to talk about it. Words like “lean” and “drank”. Shhhh. Don’t let on.
What’s the point? Wasn’t there just a clothing store owner who made his private jet crew dress rather, differently?
“And Okra played ‘Yo’ baldheaded Mammy’!”

Call someone a “field n****r”..... feel the love.
Let it wash over you Luke.
Yep. I also believe the Wicked Witch of the White House sent her flying monkeys out to do dmage to Paula.
Is that a problem?
Are blacks ashamed of the highly esteemed colored lady?
She was what 90% of black people will never be
I have an Idea, Menthol Iced Tea.

Hell, if Paula wrote me big enough of a check I’d dress up like Aunt Jemima, Col. Sanders, or Cap’n Crunch!
